Moms are pretty great at everything, but there is one thing they haven’t mastered… The craft of leaving voicemails.
It always starts with an introduction… As if we didn’t know what our parents sound like.
There’s this thing called Caller ID. Mom, you should really give it a try.
Or sometimes they skip the intro and get straight to the point.
“Leave a message after the beep” is just a suggestion to them.
Sadly, they think a voicemail works like an answering machine. Remember those?
No, I can’t hear you when you leave a message…thankfully.
Others le entran a la plática by themselves.
Jumped to a conclusion real fast.
The most WTF moment happens when she says she can’t remember why she called.
The voicemails was less than 10 seconds ago. How did you forget??
Or when she has a mini asthma attack on the phone.
Kind of cute, kind of alarming. We’re getting that checked.
Because nothing makes me want to call a person back than slow, deep, creepy breathing on the other line.
But it’s so cute when you hear their accents ☺️.
A voicemail that only you would understand.
But this isn’t exclusive to Latina moms. Dads are the same way.
The Latina mom syndrome is contagious.
Warning: Don’t let them catch you liking a photo before returning their call.
You don’t know how to change the batteries on the remote, but somehow you know when I’m online? How, mom? HOW?!
Because they’ll respond like this:
But if I curse, it’s the end of the world.
Regardless how furious they are, it ends on a sweet note 💞.
It’s an emotional rollercoaster.
But really tho, who leaves voicemails these days??
Some of them will do all of these and STILL leave a voicemail just in case I missed the other 9876876 notifications.
Check out other voicemails we’ve gotten from mom.
